Like his compatriot Tomas Soucek, the Czech Republic international seems to have taken to the Premier League like a duck to water.

“Playing three at the back – (Vladimir) Coufal has come in and done a superb job – the balance looks superb.”


David Moyes has received plenty of stick from the West Ham fans for his dithering manner during the transfer window.

Let’s hope that the Czech goes on to enjoy a successful career at the London Stadium. The fans already love the 28-year-old’s attitude.

And if Coufal continues to display the quality that he has done already, he could go on to become a cult hero in east London.
